Thomas Hart Benton is surely the most American of artists. The past, the present, and the future of our country have been his preoccupation during an artistic career spanning more than half a century. This volume, produced with the active cooperation of the artist, places before the reader the entire exciting panorama of Benton’s work, including many pictures never before published at the time this book was printed.
Prominently featured in this book are the famous Benton murals painted for the New School for Social Research and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, for the State of Indiana, for the Missouri State Capitol, and for the Municipal Building in Joplin. A number are reproduced in large foldouts. The magnificent illustrations, almost half in full color, present a vista of America that is uniquely Thomas Hart Benton’s and, by virtue of his artistic integrity, uniquely American. Added textual features of the volume are a full chronology and a selected bibliography.
229 illustrations, including 101 plates in full color.
